Fantasy Picks for the GT vs PBKS Match
Captain/Wicketkeeper : Jos Buttler
The only player who found the knack to score effectively in IPL. Considering his current form, he is a great asset to be our captain.
Vice captain : Sai Sudharsan
The young Sai Sudharsan has been in the form of his life. He loves to spend more time inside the crease. He is a perfect vice captain candidate.
Batsmen : S Gill, S Hetmyer, David Miller, S Sudarshan
Hetmyer and Miller are excellent power hitters at death overs. They have been performing it in the previous game. Men in form who don’t need to be missed.
S Gill’s batting against pace bowlers is staunch. Every single room provided to him will be utilised to time hard. Undoubtedly, he is the best thing in making.
All rounders : R Ashwin, Holder
Both of them has the job to do with bat and the ball. So it’s better to pick him in our team.
Bowlers : M Shami, A Joseph, Rashid Khan.
The pace duos M Shami and A Joseph are extremely quick. They may look ruthless on this wicket with that unreal pace and seam movement.
As the day passes, Rashid Khan gets tougher and tougher for the batters. He is both economical and wicket-taking.
At the same time, Yuzi Chahal is the kind of bowler suited for this pitch. He could use his loop to tempt the batter and had been the most effective bowler in this tournament.
Winning Dream11 Team
Once again, it is Jos Buttler, who is going to be the key opener in the Royals side. With the quality of bowlers GT possess, the progress of the Buttler’s innings is going to be crucial for Rajasthan.
Rashid Khan in the middle overs and Mohammed Shami in the powerplays will be the bowlers to watch out for from the Gujarat perspective.
